Baseball's Back ALRIGHT
It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiime of the yeeeear!!! Baseball season is upon us! Today is OPENING DAY! Time for warm weather and sitting outside with a frosty beverage in one hand and a hot dog in the other. For sporting new sunglasses and shorty shorts. For long days ending in warm nights. To those of you scoffing out there about baseball (I hear you) let me explain why it is the greatest sport ever. The food and booze. Ok, I don’t need to say anymore. I have a plethora of things I would like to do before I die. I have said for years that I want to visit every Major League Ballpark (I’ve been to 13, I lack 17) This week I will be heading to PHILADELPHIA for the Phillies home opener.
I have only been to Philadelphia once before. It was several years ago when I took a Greyhound Bus from DC to NYC and we stopped in Philly on the way there because our bus had a flat tire. Then the bus dropped us off in an alley in Chinatown, in New York, at 2am and come to think of it, it may not have been a Greyhound but some sort of shady ‘Tours for the Elderly’ bus I accidentally hopped on at Union Station. The lady sitting next to me was kind enough to share her room temperature tapioca pudding. It’s the least she could do since her colostomy bag was practically in my lap…but I digress. I need suggestions of what to do in Philly…That don’t involve shivering on the side of the road in the dark. I want to know the absolute best place to eat a Philly Cheesesteak. The ins and outs of the city. Any secret places or cool museums or fun bars. Please help me out. I’m so excited to visit the city of brotherly love. Even though I only have a sister. And brotherly love sounds incestuous. But it also reminds me of that show in the 90’s starring the Lawrence brothers and whatever happened to them?
